WASHINGTON, Nov. 17 (Reuters / EP) –
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, has called on Sunday the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, to “act quickly” to reach an agreement with Washington on its nuclear weapons.
“You should act fast, close the agreement! See you soon!”, He said on Twitter, suggesting a new summit between the two after three meetings from 2018 until now unsuccessful.
North Korea on Thursday warned that it said Thursday it had rejected an offer from the United States to hold new talks before the end of the year deadline that Pyongyang has set for Washington to show more flexibility.
This same Sunday, the United States Secretary of Defense, Mark Esper, announced from Thailand the suspension of joint winter air maneuvers with South Korea to facilitate negotiation.
On Friday, the official North Korean news agency, KCNA, had criticized the favorite Democrat for the 2020 elections, Joe Biden, calling him a “rabid dog.” Trump has come out in defense of Biden. “Joe Biden can be lazy and very slow, but he is not a 'mad dog',” he has argued. “In fact, he is somewhat better than that, but I am the only one who can take you where you need to be,” he has hinted.
